Comment
The five engravings by Raffaello Schiaminossi are part of a series of 29 prints from which 26 represent episodes from the life of Margaret of Austria and three large ones depict the catafalque in the church of San Lorenzo, Florence planned by Giulio Parigi on 6 February, 1612. The prints illustrated the book by Giovanni Altoviti 'Essequie della sacra cattolica e real maesta di Margherita d'Austria, regina di Spagna, celebrate dal serenissimo don cosimo Il Gran Duca di Toscana III, descritte da Giovanni Altoviti' published in 1612. Schiaminossi worked together with Antonio Tempesta (6 etchings), who was the supervisor of the project and Jacques Callot (18 etchings). Tempesta executed nos. 1, 2, 10, 11, 13, 20 and Callot nos. 6, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16-19, 21-26.
